    Default Just Plain Fun

    So if you're sitting down for a bit of gaming, and you don't want to tax your brain with something tough or learning something new, what games can you always rely on to just give you a burst of fun?

    The latest I've played like this is Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, which I got for Christmas. Whenever I play it I sit there with a big goofy grin on my face.

    Rhythm games like Dance Dance Revolution, Gitaroo Man or Um Jammer Lammy.

    Saints Row 2/Saints Row IV

    Just an all around campy good time. 2 was buggy and hilarious, and the controls weren't perfect, which frequently added to the insanity. IV embraced all the insanity and integrated it into the game and then put it on steroids and LSD and fixed the controls. And gave me super powers. Dash into one guy, punch him into the air, then round-house kick him across the city, and dash into the next guy and pound him into a tree, and dash into the next guy. Hand to hand fighting in that game is ... SO. MUCH. FUN.

    If I need something mindless, I'll pick up a sudoku game on DS/3DS or something. Maybe Tetris if I want a little more involvement

    I don't really have any games that are actual games but don't tax me at all. I'd always been interested in things like Journey or Proteus, so I presume those are good contenders for that area of gaming. The beautiful and surreal virtual vacation thing

    Metal Gear Solid. I used to just run around with the stealth camouflage and act like a ghost, messing with the guards and stuff. Because in the original game you could go through people, so all I would do is just dick around with the soldiers all day. Appear, disappear, blow something up and watch as they try to figure out what's going on.

    The Sims is good for this.

    Also, I just picked up Age of Mythology recently, and yes, it's a game where you do have to concentrate a little but just playing the random single player campaign is a lot of fun and you can easily lose a few hours.
